Employee Care

Employee Care

The care we provide to our employees also involves their social responsibility.

The care we provide to our employees also involves their social responsibility. We offer them chances for personal development through various CSR activities and support their personal involvement and volunteering also in their free time.

Expert Volunteers

Our employees share their knowledge with non-profit organisations and social businesses through programme Our Path to Sustainability. They also share their knowledge with younger generations to promote responsible and sustainable entrepreneurship. They get involved as instructors of free-of-charge training courses as well as mentors guiding young innovators within the iKid programme. They also help implement service grants.  

DobroDny/Dobrodays

Within volunteering activities, our employees have the opportunity to spend one fully-paid day a year helping a non-profit organisation and a community in which we operate. In the 2019 fiscal year, 395 volunteers volunteered to provide help in 16 non-profit organisations.

Employee Grant Programme

We support organisations with which our employees have lasting relationships. Every year, our staff may introduce an organisation of their choice into our grant process and gain up to CZK 30 000 for the organisation’s programme. In the FY 2019, we donated CZK 569 000 to 29 non-profit organisations in this manner. 

Matching Fund

Anytime our employees want to help, we support them. If colleagues get together and raise money among themselves to support a good cause, we match their donations equally.

In 2016, we launched an internal application called Pro dobrou věc (For a Good Cause) simplifying the donation process as well as the administration of any funds raised. In 2019, in six fund-raising drives our employees raised a total of CZK 443 801

 

Day for Life

Since 2009, we have been enabling our employees to donate blood directly at our premises.
The General University Hospital in Prague comes to our premises up to three times a year.

Since 2016, we have been cooperating with the Hilton hotel whose employees have also been donating blood at our premises. We also organise blood donation events for our colleagues in Brno.

During every Day for Life we thus manage to donate more than 15 litres of blood.

Sports for a Good Cause

Our employees also like to help with their sports endeavours and thus we also often participate in charity events that involve sports. We have taken part in Sue Ryder Cups, Liga Cups and many Dragon Boat Races.

Non-profit Cinema

Right in our building, we show documentary films featuring important social or ecological topics. The films’ showings are always followed by discussions with experts from the non-profit sector. The goal is to familiarise our employees (and their families) with possibilities for their personal engagement and to show them the work of non-profits in detail.

Non-financial Collection Drives

Throughout the year, our employees may donate clothing as well as personal hygiene items for the needy. We then donate the collected items to organisations that subsequently distribute them where they are most needed. During 2018 we managed to collect and donate 559 kg of clothing.
